Ugly Fruit The ugly fruit was discovered growing wild in a pasture at the Trout Hall Estate in Jamaica in 1917. It is still grown there today.
Ugly Fruit Ugly fruit is a variety of tangelo thought to be a hybrid between a grapefruit, an orange & a tangerine.
Ugly Fruit The fruit’s name comes from its unsightly appearance. It has a rough, wrinkled, greenish yellow skin, wrapped loosely around the orange pulpy fruit inside. The shape is between that of a pear and orange.
Ugly Fruit The fruits varied coloration makes it difficult to tell when it is ripe. The light green blemishes turn orange when it reaches peak ripeness.
Ugly Fruit The ugly fruit is slightly larger than a grapefruit with fewer seeds. The flesh is very juicy with the sweetness of a tangerine rather than the bitterness of the grapefruit.
Ugly Fruit Ugly fruit is grown under the brand names Ugli or Uniq Fruit.
Ugly Fruit Ugly fruit is eaten like a tangerine, peeling & sectioning. Some like to remove the skin from the segments. It is also eaten in salads or juiced to make a drink. It is an excellent source of Vitamin C.
